The sepia-toned old-timey photo from last week's quiz is the first in a series of pictures shown in the title sequence of everybody's favorite alphabetically-sound outlaw couple, Bonnie and Clyde.
Sorry for the delay on this week's quiz. The Tribeca Film Festival is in full swing, and I've been busy working on the acquisition of Fish Eyes, which was just announced today. Yes, Benten Films has acquired their first Asian film, and what a film it is. A powerful, gorgeous Jia Zhang-ke-esque independent drama from newcomer Zheng Wei, who I am convinced is at the start of a long and successful career. Part of the new Beijing independent movement, Zheng's film is remarkably assured, particularly for a first film. (This certainly isn't mumblecore!) Danny Kasman wrote a nice review over at The Auteurs, and even The New York Post's V.A. Musetto had kind words.
This week -- time for them to start getting a bit more difficult. Name this iconic masterpiece that opens with a bit of 8mm film leader. Submit your answers to this address. Good luck!
